All sorts of different ailments and symptoms rise up in people of all ages, and our first instinct is usually to turn to bottles of pills to dull the pain. But that isn’t the only option. Jersey Shore Wellness Center is a chiropractic office in Point Pleasant, New Jersey, owned by Dr. Tony Garrow and Dr. Susan Nemiroff. Their mission is to help as many people as they can to get healthier, feel better, feel younger, and avoid invasive drugs and surgery.
Dr. Tony has been practicing since 2000 at Garrow Family Chiropractic. He grew up and went to high school in Wall Township, so it seemed a natural fit to him to return there to open up a practice. He, Dr. Susan, and her husband, Dr. Lance Nemiroff, all went to school together at Life University in Georgia. Ultimately, they shared the same goal of pursuing a career that would afford them the opportunity to help a lot of people, and to offer a more natural route to wellness. About five years ago, they were reunited by chance and joined his practice. Not long after, Dr. Susan and Dr. Tony teamed up to open Jersey Shore Wellness Center and it has been thriving for the past two and a half years.
Chiropractic has been around for over one hundred years, but recently has been gathering increasing support. We have seen a rise in problems with the abuse of prescription drugs, and there has been a push for alternatives to medication. Not only does Jersey Shore Wellness Centerprovide chiropractic servicesas an alternative, but they also have staff to offer acupuncture, massage therapy, physical therapy, nutrition and supplements.
The staff at Jersey Shore Wellness Center works with people of all ages, from infants to seniors. There has actually been a rise in the number of younger patients, because the increase in the use of electronics has led to more sedentary lives, which creates back and neck problems in children and teenagers. Initially, chiropractors find that patients come to them with some kind of symptoms or discomfort. Usually within a few visits, or just a few weeks, they will see notable improvement. On top of that, often patients begin to recognize many of the other health benefits of chiropractic in addition to simply relieving one point of pain.
In addition to services in the office, the doctors are actively involved in the community. Dr. Susan is a past president of the Point Pleasant Beach Rotary, and currently on the board for the Point Pleasant Beach Chamber of Commerce. Dr. Tony is on the board of the Point Pleasant Boro Chamber of Commerce, as well as the Jersey Shore Chamber of Commerce. Dr. Lance is also the president of the Jersey Shore Triathlon Club. They run fund raisers for organizations such as St. Gregory’s Pantry and offer community service to give back, such as chair massage for teachers. They also have a strong focus on athletes and have been chiropractors for the Lakewood Blue Claws, and are currently working with Sky Blue FC, New Jersey’s professional soccer team. The practice has been awarded the Business Excellence Award by the Point Pleasant Chamber of Commerce and the Osprey Award for Outstanding Community Service by the Jersey Shore Chamber of Commerce.
Currently, Dr. Tony and Dr. Susan are focused on growing both the Jersey Shore Wellness Center in Point Pleasant and Garrow Family Chiropractic practice in Sea Girt. They hope to serve both Ocean and Monmouth County and help as many people as they can to learn about better and more natural health care options.
